Market and Archangel still work after the update.

Probably should be more specific... Market hack still works after update.

Updated mine last night but have not played with it yet to see if everything is still good.

I think it's pretty obvious what I meant, since there is no official Market support anyways.

Greg_E 02-17-2011 09:17 PM

No not really... Someone who wasn't in on the know might think they finally brought the market out with this firmware. Or it could be referring to the web based market.

Stop your nitpicking and enjoy the ride. I have the fw update, the market, and all my games & apps thanks to that great installer app. I'm on the site w/my Archos 70 right now - luvin' it!!!
